Wednesday Was For Sewing

Yesterday I sat down to the sewing machine and I sewed!  I made a car caddy organizer (for the car).  I thought this might help corral some of the little things in the car that tend to sink to the bottom of the center console and disappear.  The sewing was pretty straight forward and the tutorial was very clear.  Once again, my Wonder clips made everything super easy to keep straight.  I've found that these are wonderful for heavyweight bags and accessories.  I don't use them for garment sewing because they do add some weight and I don't want things to be stretched out.

I think I sewed the pleated pocket sections differently than the instructions said to (I maybe didn't pay attention to the instructions at that point very well).  I also decided not to use the giant grommets for the lower anchors and just added some tabbed rings.  I'll tie the bottom edge down with some paracord.
I had some scraps leftover and a spare zipper laying around, so I made a little zipper bag as well.  This is kind of a mashup of several different bag patterns I have and the measurements were based on the size of my scraps.  I like the fabric, it reminds me of of Indiana Jones and while the bag is not big enough for knitting, it will hold other things just fine.  That's probably good because Caleb has already walked off with it.
